Starring: Tuva Novotny, Flemming Enevold
Another amnesiac psycho-drama that assumes we won't recall much better previous examples of the genre.
Tuva Novotny plays a woman who wakes up in the shallows of a river with a bump on her head, a kitbag full of euros and no memory of who she is or how she got there. She checks into a French hotel under the name Aliena (see what she did there?) before returning to her native Copenhagen, where she finds her name is actually Ida.
Piece by piece she puts her shattered identity back together, the chief co-ordinates turning out to be her radical activist brother (Carsten Bjørnlund) and her opera-star husband (Flemming Enevold) – both actors familiar from the Danish TV serial The Killing.
Director Christian E Christiansen treats the obstacles of credibility like a getaway driver scattering a police roadblock, though once the revelations start to bubble up in the second half it works an undeniable pulp spell.
That title remains rather annoying.
